This ship has a strain of flu not yet in the U.S. and is knowingly operating without quarantine or warning at-risk passengers. I saw a cupful of bedbugs found by first time cruisers on their honeymoon, scrubbed black slimemold out of my handicapped shower. I paid too much for my mediocre, passive/ aggressive pedicure. Dining and waitstaff were magnificent, thankfully. As half of a double income no kids, I am unimpressed, regardless of the Captain's good graces. Take Clorox wipes and avoid the population the UK is beautiful. The ship's age is showing, and I understand that it's a ship, things do go wrong, but having watched several friends and family members have to get upset/ and/or sick enough to have to raise their voices to get a response , I will be hard pressed to recommend this brand. For an organization that bills themselves as the consummate host, I find their actions, rather lack thereof, grossly negligent, greedy, and deplorable.
